Happy New Year, and welcome to a New Season of Inside Learning. Rosan Bosch joins us for our first episode of Season 3.

Rosan is the founder and Creative Director at Rosan Bosch Studio, designing state-of-the-art learning landscapes built for wonder, motivation and creativity. She brings years of experience in transforming education using design as a tool for change, and today, educational innovation and transformation are on the agenda of every school and institution around the world. 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist. Rosan Bosch Studio is renowned globally for integrating innovative learning experiences in physical design and looks to the environment’s role in promoting better education through playful learning experiences  – preparing children to become agile, creative thinkers in an unknown future.

We discuss topics from Rosan’s books:  “Play to Learn – Designing for Uncertainty”, and “Designing for a Better World Starts at School”


Rosan is founder and creative director of Rosan Bosch Studio. She is internationally renowned for her designs and inspiring perspectives on stimulating learning spaces.

With design as a tool for innovation and change, Rosan challenges established cultures and norms. In close dialogue with the users, she transforms physical spaces into meaningful and significant experiences – from stimulating workspaces to libraries and schools for all ages.

Rosan is the creative force of the studio. She sets the course for our visions, concept development, user involvement and strategic decisions that provide holistic design solutions.

Her new book ‘Play to Learn – Designing for Uncertainty‘ is a hands-on inspirational guide to designing playful learning landscapes that place the learner at the center of the design and education. In Designing for a Better World Starts at School, she presents a new paradigm for future school designs that support human development and creativity. Using six principles for learning situations, she creates differentiated, imaginative and dynamic environments that meet the needs for diversity and flexibility in learning experiences.

She has worked with local and national authorities to transform education, from the Vittra schools in Sweden and the award-winning Sheikh Zayed Private Academy in Abu Dhabi to the Ministry of Education in Argentina. She has developed innovative public libraries like the Children’s Library in Billund as well as development workspaces for Lego PMD and exhibitions for international companies like VELUX and Mærsk.

Rosan is educated at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in the Netherlands and the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona in Spain, and has worked professionally with art, architecture and design for more than 25 years.
